One of the most talked about events at this year’s Advertising Week, the NextRadio panel was moderated by David Pogue, Technology Columnist at theNew York Times, and included:  David Owens, Vice President, Product, Sprint Corporation; Paul Brenner, Senior Vice President & Chief Technology Officer, Emmis Communications; Joel Klaiman, Executive Vice President & General Manager, Columbia Records; and Joe Riccitelli, Executive Vice President & General Manager, RCA Records.

A ground-breaking arrangement with Sprint led by Jeff Smulyan of Emmis Communications marks the first time a U.S. wireless carrier is making FM broadcast radio accessible on a broad array of its devices.
